RUTHERFORD PARKS LIBRARY PROJECT
Featured exhibits under consideration include the academy’s longtime owner and publishing tycoon, Bernarr MacFadden. MacFadden is probably best known as the “father of physical culture” and integrated his fitness concepts as a key part of the Castle Heights cadet development.
Other exhibits include the history of CHMA, the prominent faculty, cadet life, athletics, campus architecture and notable alumni, some who have had a remarkable, if somewhat unknown, impact on much of the country’s history.
An ADA restroom has been added as well as a storage/archives room in the back of the building.
The wood floors have been refinished and look beautiful. The interior has been painted.
Display cases are ready with photographs and memorabilia.
